My daughter was twelve months old when we noticed unusual symptoms and body movements in her. We had no family history of autism, but I had sufficient knowledge about this condition. We took her to a doctor at Teknon Medical Center and discussed her symptoms. The doctor started ABA therapy for her, and it worked well. Now she is three years old, and 70% of her symptoms have been reduced. Thanks to her amazing doctor.

I got my tumor removed at Quironsalud Teknon Medical Center. Although it was a benign tumor, I was extremely worried, but the doctors at Teknon Medical Center made everything easy. I had to undergo two sessions of radiation therapy, but I am glad to announce that the tumor is gone. I am extremely grateful to ClinicsonCall for connecting me to Teknon Medical Center.

I recently had a PET MRI Scan at Teknon Medical Center, and I must say that the experience was surprisingly comfortable. From the moment I walked in, the staff made sure I felt at ease, taking the time to explain the procedure and address any concerns. The technicians were incredibly patient and understanding, making sure I was comfortable before starting the scan. The facility itself was clean and well-maintained, contributing to an overall positive experience. I appreciate the care I received at Teknon Medical Center during my scan.

My son was born with scoliosis, and his hunched back deprived him of many activities that a normal kid would do. We started searching for the treatment, but it was unavailable in our country. We decided to search abroad and found out about clinics on call through a friend. We were set up with their coordinator, who suggested we consult Dr. Bartolme Oliver. We did a thorough research on the Internet and decided to visit him. Fortunately, the doctor said it was possible to correct the scoliosis for which he did the surgery. We stayed in Spain for six months, which was worth it. Dr. Oliver was very supportive and helpful throughout our journey.

I recently underwent treatment for a spinal cyst, and I must say that the care I received at Quironsalud Hospital Madrid was exceptional. My symptoms were quite debilitating and had been affecting my quality of life for some time, but the doctors and staff at the hospital were incredibly compassionate and attentive to my needs. The diagnostic process was thorough and efficient, and my doctor explained everything to me so that I knew exactly what was happening. The treatment plan was tailored to my situation, and the surgical procedure went smoothly without complications. After the surgery, I received excellent follow-up care, with regular check-ins to monitor my progress and ensure I was recovering well. I am feeling much better now and can enjoy my daily activities without pain or discomfort. I am satisfied with the care I received and would highly recommend this hospital to anyone in need of similar treatment.

I recently experienced an Intracranial Hematoma, which was a scary and challenging situation to deal with. It started with a sudden and severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting, and then I started feeling confused and disoriented. I was rushed to the Quironsalud Hospital Madrid, where I underwent a CT scan that showed bleeding in my brain. The doctors quickly diagnosed me with an Intracranial Hematoma and took me into surgery to remove the clot. The procedure was successful, and I am grateful to the skilled medical team that saved my life. The recovery process was not easy, as I had to spend some time in the ICU and then in a rehabilitation center to regain my strength and mobility. I also had to take medication to prevent seizures and manage my pain. Now, several months after the incident, I am still dealing with some residual symptoms, such as headaches and memory problems. However, I am slowly but surely regaining my independence and returning to my normal activities.

I recently underwent MRI-Guided Stereotactic Laser Ablation for a brain tumor at Quironsalud Madrid, and I have to say that the procedure was nothing short of amazing. The team of doctors who performed the procedure were incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and they explained everything to me in detail so that I knew what to expect. They also ensured that I was comfortable throughout the process and that all my questions were answered. The procedure was quick and painless, and I could go home the same day. I had some mild discomfort and headache for a few days afterwards, but it was nothing that could not be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention that I received.

I was diagnosed with post-traumatic plexopathy after a serious car accident that left me with severe pain and weakness in my arm. My doctor recommended post-traumatic plexopathy treatment, and I am so grateful I followed his advice. The treatment was comprehensive and tailored to my specific needs, and the team of medical professionals at Quironsalud Hospital Marbella were incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate. Over the course of several months, I received physical therapy and nerve blocks. The team worked with me every step of the way to make sure that I was comfortable and understood the process. I also appreciated that they kept me informed about my progress and adjusted my treatment plan as needed. My pain has significantly decreased, and my arm strength has improved. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone struggling with similar conditions.

I had a medical emergency while vacationing in Mexico. This was the second time I had an episode like this. The first time was in the United States after 14 days I was not able to get a diagnosis. I was admitted to Valencia Hospital in March. Dr. Lozano was my physician, from the minute, I met him. I knew that I was going to receive great care. I was able to leave the hospital four days later with a diagnosis something that wasn’t done for me in the states. His diagnostic abilities are excellent. I received great care, Dr. Lozano and Valencia Hospital.

I was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) after my premature birth. Initially, my parents were very worried about my health and future development, but with the help of my doctors and therapists at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia, I have been able to make progress and reach important milestones. Living with PVL has its challenges, including motor difficulties, speech delays, and learning disabilities. However, I have received great support from my family, caregivers, and medical team, who have worked tirelessly to provide me with the best possible care and interventions. Although PVL is a lifelong condition, I am determined to keep pushing myself and achieving my goals. I am grateful for the love and care I have received, and I am optimistic about my future. My team at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia is very supportive.

I was diagnosed with an AVM a few months ago, and it was quite scary to learn about this condition. However, I am very grateful to have been able to receive proper treatment and care from my doctors at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia. Initially, I did not know much about AVMs and was concerned about what the diagnosis would mean for my health. My doctors did a great job explaining the condition to me and the treatment options available. They recommended that I undergo embolization followed by surgery to remove the AVM. The procedure itself was not too difficult, and I was able to return home the next day. The recovery process was a bit more challenging, but my medical team gave me great support and care. They made sure that I was comfortable and provided me with all the necessary information. Now that I have fully recovered, I feel grateful for the care I received and the successful treatment. I feel much better and am able to resume my daily activities without any problems.

As a patient diagnosed with an aneurysm of the cerebral artery, I wanted to share my experience to help others who may be going through the same thing. Firstly, the diagnosis itself was a shock. I had been experiencing some mild headaches, but I never expected to be told that I had a bulge in the blood vessel in my brain. The medical team at Quironsalud Valencia was very reassuring, and they explained the condition to me in detail, which helped me understand what was happening. The treatment process was also smooth. I was offered two options: surgery or endovascular coiling. After careful consideration, I chose endovascular coiling. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia, and I could go home the next day. I experienced some headaches and fatigue for a few days, but overall, it was smooth. I had to take some time off work to rest, but after a week or so, I could resume my normal activities.

I recently underwent a discectomy to reconstruct my intervertebral cartilage, and I could not be happier with the results. Prior to the surgery, I was experiencing chronic back pain and limited mobility. My doctor at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia recommended this procedure to address the root cause of my discomfort. The surgery itself was relatively straightforward, and my recovery time was minimal. Within a few weeks, I noticed a significant improvement. I no longer experience the constant pain I had grown accustomed to, and I can move around more freely. The reconstruction surgery has truly been life-changing for me. I can now enjoy activities I had previously given up on due to my back pain. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who is experiencing similar issues.

My knees were killing me, and my family doctor suggested a total knee replacement. I was referred to Quironsalud Torrevieja Hospital. The hospital's services were brilliant. They spoke wonderful English and went over everything. The surgery was excellent, and I was able to recover without any problems. I also had physical therapy after the procedure. It was painful, but it made a significant impact! I am now free of pain. Thanks to Quironsalud Hospital.

Why is it Worth Getting Treatment for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma in Spain?

  • The success rate for patients with NPC in Spain is 87% higher than the global average, thanks to the country's digital setup, skilled doctors, and comprehensive approach to cancer care.
  • The best Clinics for Nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Spain are:
    • Hospital Quironsalud Barcelona- This hospital is a leading center for cancer treatment and research. It has a JCI and ISO-certified head and neck cancer unit that offers advanced cancer care utilizing radiation techniques.
    • Quironsalud Hospital Madrid- This is one of the leading cancer treatment centers having JCI and Applus certification. It offers multiple treatment options, including minimally invasive procedures and radiation methods.
  • The best Doctors for Nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Spain are:
    • Dr. Andrés Varela de Ugarte is a thoracic oncological surgeon specializing in tracheal surgery, lung surgery and lung transplantation. He has more than 30 years of experience.
    • Prof. Dr. Raimon Miralbell is a radiation oncology specialist at Quironsalud Teknon Hospital. He specializes in advanced-stage cancer care and has over 36 years of experience.

How is Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Diagnosed in Spain?

Spanish doctors focus on medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests for accurate diagnosis. The most common diagnostic methods are discussed below:

  • Physical examination- The doctor will examine the head and neck, including the nasopharynx, using a flexible scope to look for any lumps, bumps or other abnormalities.
  • Imaging tests: These are used to determine the location, size and extent of cancer and may include:
  • MRI scan: It uses a strong magnetic field for detailed images and is the most common imaging test for NPC diagnosis.
  • CT scan: During this, the doctors use X-rays to create detailed cross-sectional images
  • Biopsy: It involves taking a small tissue sample from the nasopharynx for laboratory analysis. This is usually done using a small needle inserted through the skin or a flexible scope passed through the nose.

How is Nasopharyngeal carcinoma Treated in Spanish Hospitals?

The treatment plan depends on the cancer stage and the tumour's size and location. The frequently administered treatments for NPC are:

Radiation therapy

  • It is a common treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), and the goal is to target and destroy cancer cells in the nasopharynx area while sparing nearby healthy tissue.
  • You will undergo a series of radiation therapy sessions, and these are done on an outpatient basis. Doctors can use the following radiation techniques:
    • External beam radiation therapy- This technique involves using a machine to deliver high-energy radiation beams to the tumor from outside the body. During treatment, the patient lies on a table while the machine rotates around them to deliver the radiation beams from multiple angles. Each session typically lasts 15-30 minutes, and patients may receive treatment five days a week for several weeks.
    • Brachytherapy: Doctors place radioactive sources directly into the tumor or nearby tissue under this procedure. This can be done using a catheter or applicator inserted into the nasopharynx area. The radioactive sources are left in place for a specified time to deliver the necessary radiation dose.

Chemotherapy

  • It can be used to treat NPC with other treatments like radiation therapy or surgery. The doctors prefer a combination of two or more drugs given intravenously.
  • These drugs are usually administered in cycles, with each cycle lasting several weeks. Most p[referred drugs used for NPC may include cisplatin, fluorouracil, paclitaxel, docetaxel, or gemcitabine, among others.

Targeted therapy

  • In NPC, targeted therapy is typically directed at a protein called epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), often overexpressed in NPC cells. Several targeted therapies have been approved, including:
    • Cetuximab: This monoclonal antibody targets EGFR and is administered intravenously. It can be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
    • Gefitinib: A small molecule inhibitor that targets EGFR and is taken orally. It is usually used for advanced NPC that has not responded to other treatments.

Immunotherapy

  • A cancer treatment that helps the immune system recognize and attack cancer cells. Immunotherapy has been shown to be effective in treating various types of cancer, including NPC. Doctors use several types that can be used to treat NPC, including:
    • Immune checkpoint inhibitors: These drugs block certain proteins on the surface of cancer cells that can prevent the immune system from attacking them. Pembrolizumab and nivolumab are examples of immune checkpoint inhibitors that have been approved for the treatment of NPC.
    • T-cell transfer therapy: This approach involves removing T cells from the patient's blood, genetically modifying them to recognize and attack cancer cells, and then infusing them back into the patient's body.

Surgeries for Nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Spain

Surgery is one of the primary treatment options for NPC, but it is usually reserved for early-stage cancer localized to the nasopharynx.

Endoscopic surgery

  • It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can be used to treat NPC and involves using an endoscope, a long, thin, flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it. The surgeon uses the endoscope to visualize the tumor and surrounding tissues. The tumor is then removed using specialized instruments.
  • Endoscopic surgery for NPC offers several advantages over traditional open surgery, including smaller incisions and faster recovery times. It takes two to three hours

Maxillectomy

  • A surgical procedure that involves the removal of the maxilla or upper jaw bone which can be performed as part of the treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The surgery takes 60-90 minutes
  • It involves making incisions in the mouth or on the face to gain access to the tumor and the maxilla. The tumor is then carefully removed along with any affected bone and tissue.
  • In some cases, maxilla reconstruction may be necessary and involves using bone grafts or synthetic materials to rebuild the upper jaw and restore the normal facial structure.

Radial neck dissection

  • This surgical procedure is used to treat NPC when cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in the neck and involves removing the lymph nodes and any surrounding tissue.
  • A horizontal incision is made across the front of the neck, just below the jawline. The blood vessels that supply the lymph nodes are ligated and divided to prevent bleeding. The surgery is completed in three to four hours

Outlook for Nasopharyngeal carcinoma

  • The prognosis for NPC is better than other types of head and neck cancers, especially if detected early. In the early stages, NPC is more responsive to treatment and has a higher chance of being cured. However, if cancer has already spread to other parts of the body, the prognosis may not be as good.
  • The 5-year survival rate for all people with NPC in the United States is 61% (cancer.net).

Recovery after Nasopharyngeal carcinoma

  • After completing treatment, it is common to experience side effects, such as fatigue, loss of appetite, difficulty swallowing, and dry mouth. These symptoms can be managed with medications and lifestyle modifications.
  • Following up with your surgical team regularly is important to monitor their recovery and address any concerns. You may also be referred to rehabilitation specialists to help you regain strength.
  • In addition to medical treatment, maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a nutritious diet, engaging in regular exercise, and avoiding tobacco.
  • Overall, recovery from NPC is possible in six to eight weeks, and you can return to a normal routine.

Reviews about treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Spain

Vikran Ken

The patient review has been verified Patients Reviews Policy

, Egypt:
  I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional care and treatment I received for my endoscopic surgery at Quironsalud Hospital Barcelona for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was met with compassion and professionalism that instantly put me at ease. The team of doctors and nurses worked tirelessly to develop a personalized treatment plan that successfully eradicated cancer and ensured my physical and emotional well-being throughout the process. Thanks to their expertise and dedication, I am now cancer-free and living a fulfilling life.

FAQs

How does Nasopharyngeal carcinoma spread?

NPC spreads primarily through three pathways that involve direct invasion, where NPC cells can invade and spread through the tissues and structures near the nasopharynx, including the skull base and cranial nerves. Using lymphatic spread, NPC cells can spread to the lymph nodes, the first line of defence against the cancer cells. Through hematogenous spread, cells can enter the bloodstream and spread to the lungs, liver, or bones.

How can Nasopharyngeal carcinoma be prevented?

NPC is common in certain parts of the world, such as Southern China, Southeast Asia, and North Africa. This may be due to environmental factors, such as exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, and consumption of certain foods. Reducing exposure to these factors may help to reduce the risk of developing NPC. It can be prevented by avoiding contact with people having Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) or infectious mononucleosis, which is caused by EBV. Foods high in antioxidants, such as blueberries, strawberries, and spinach, may be particularly beneficial in prevention.

What causes Nasopharyngeal carcinoma?

The exact cause of NPC is not fully understood, but several factors have been identified as possible risk factors, such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. Individuals with a family history of NPC are at a higher risk of developing the disease. Certain types of food, such as salted fish, preserved vegetables, and red meat, may increase the risk.
